Need help pitching your product or business? The May 10th meeting of the JeffCo Innovators' Workshop will feature "Pitch Fest." This is an opportunity for existing business owners, or startup owners, to get valuable feedback on their sale pitch to customers, clients, or investors from people who have extraordinary experience in successfully pitching products and companies to generate millions of dollars.

No cost to participate, but you must be pre-registered and provide a $20 refundable deposit fee to hold your spot on the schedule. Entrepreneurs will have the ability present their pitch in five minutes, and will receive a 10-minute consultation with suggestions. Pitches can include slides and demo products.


1. As a presenter of a product sales, service, or political issue pitch

2. As part of the audience. After the expert panel has provided feedback, the audience is encouraged to ask questions and offer suggestions in the time remaining. You must RSVP on this page to attend as part of the audience or at the sister EventBrite page HERE. (

The first five minutes you begin talking about your product or service are the most important. Most opinions about you, and what you are trying to sell, are formed in that time.

If you need help testing your sales pitch to investors or customers, bring your five-minute “pitch” to the JeffCo Innovators’ Workshop on May 10 and get valuable feedback and suggestions from our experienced panel of business experts.

The panel will be led by three of Golden’s most successful entrepreneurs, Stephan Reckie, John R. (Grizz) Deal, Joni Inman, and Golden's Economic Development Director Steve Glueck.
